Mom Buys Daughter 12 Bags Of Cocaine For 18th Birthday
What did you get for your 18th birthday? A car? Some new clothes? Probably not enough yayo to make a rap song about, huh?
A court heard yesterday that a woman from Kent, England named Nicola Austen bought 12 bags of cocaine to ensure her daughter “had a good time” on her 18th birthday last January. Along with the coke, Austen also ordered a limo for her daughter, just to make sure her 18th birthday wasn’t all shitty, like mine was, when I got a weird bulky TV from Tesco as my main present and an odd family party where I wasn’t allowed to get drunk and we all ate vegetarian lasagna. That, versus getting extremely geared up in the back of a limo? I will take the limo cocaine and the arrested mom, thanks.
That said, the police were having none of it, and raided her home in Tunbridge Wells, finding drugs worth £300 [$460] hidden in compartments in Austen’s windowsill. Austen—who has six previous convictions, including possession—admitted to possessing cocaine with intent to supply, and confessed that she was planning to have a massive night out with her daughter.
Prosecutor Craig Evans told the court: “They were going to London in a limousine and she [Austen] wanted to ensure they had a good time.” Speaking from her home on Monday, Austen told the Daily Mail: “It’s all been blown out of proportion. I’ve had enough. It isn’t exactly the scoop of the century, is it? It was a party.”
